The world’s favorite animated collective Gorillaz have added a new member. As a sign of trust, the Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett and company asked their fans to design the cartoon as part of an online contest last November. Named Evangelist, cryptic clues on its characteristics were given on the band’s website:

“‘The Evangelist’ is the opposite of ‘The Boogieman’; the light to his awful shade. ‘The Boogieman’ has appeared in several images from the Gorillaz world, and now featured in several videos… ‘The Evangelist’ is a similar entity, but the flip-side of ‘The Boogieman’. He/she may even be revealed as ‘The Boogieman’s’ avenger. His/her outer appearance is yet to be defined. Many rumours fly around of his/her description.”

Gorillaz.com member jirouta’s submission won the contest and received a slight redesign by Hewlett. You can see the final result above. What do you think?
